William Trevor's After Rain

John Baker has been a blog friend and fellow writer ever since I started blogging. This is John's review of William Trevor's After Rain. Excerpt:

"In the title story to this impressive collection, Harriet, ensconced in the Pensione Cesarina after a love affair is finished, is just thirty years old and lonely.

"Loneliness is a condition that many of Trevor's characters endure and he is a master at finding the right rhythms and tones to portray their inner lives. This is true of his novels, but probably more so of his many short stories."

Looks like a good read.
